German footballing magazine Kicker nevertheless reports that neither player factors into the long-term plans of Bayer 04 Leverkusen. The Bayer managerial team is reportedly content to allow Azhil to remain with his current Dutch side via a free transfer.
In the case of Pohjanpalo, who has increased his market value significantly via 14 goals in the Turkish top flight, die Werkself will be shopping for a buyer. With Rizespor set to be relegated, the 27-year-old Finnish international has no future in Turkey.
It might still be the case that his current parent club can cash in on him to the tune of €3 to €5 million. German clubs where Pohjanpalo had successful loan stints--Fortuna Düsseldorf, Hamburger SV, and 1. FC Union Berlin--might count as prospective buyers.
